Escrache a Cantlay by Jon Rahm

It is a mental wreck job. Day by day, Jon Rahm reminds Patrick Cantlay that he is still right behind him, that he hasn’t gone anywhere. He breathes on her neck. It squeezes him. It gets closer and closer, expecting it to break, to make a mistake. It is a beast stalking its prey, narrowing the circle. On Thursday he already cut two shots in the first round of the Tour Championship, the final PGA, and yesterday he scratched another in the second with his -5 to -16.

The Californian started with -10, first in the FedEx Cup, and four of income over the Biscayan. It is only one. And there is still a lot of fabric to cut. 36 holes on an East Lake that is neither Caves Valley nor Liberty National. There the rough bites and to miss the fairway is practically saying goodbye to the birdie, perhaps also to the par.

Rahmbo was the best on a day in which the Atlanta (USA) track did not allow great maneuvers. Although he was out of adjustment the whole round with the irons, short many of his shots to the green, he managed to squeeze five birdies, with bursts of genius in the two in a row at 12 and 13 and the three from 16 to 18. Only the bogey at 14 stained your card.

Cantlay, in diesel mode, answered what he could. He behaved like during all the playoffs, like some kind of cyborg. It does not go very long, but it hardly misses fairways, takes a lot of greens and is kicking like a movie. He did -4 to -17. The only alternative right now seems to be Rahm, with Thomas and DeChambeau still far behind with -10 and -11 despite their efforts.

Sergio García climbed again, with two birdies without errors in the first nine and two bogeys in the nine seconds. One of lime and another of sand. Borriol’s is already 20th at -2 and could have some remote option with a notable arreón today.
